Several years ago I obtained black walnut seelings from the state forestry comission. I'd like to think they'll eventually have some value as lumber, but the darned things grow like the seven-year itch -- very slowly. I'd like some advice about fertilizing and general care.

There are a whole lot of websites out there that can give you fairly specific information about Black Walnut trees, their care and their growth. Univ. of Nebraska comes to mind. Try a good search engine (like Google) and type in Black Walnut. You'll find lots of information tending towards the commercial care and growing, but there's also some for the homeowner.

Generally speaking, these trees are considered "moderate" in their growth rates. That is indicative more of the fact that they'll provide character and beauty to the place they're planted within your lifetime, and probably also nuts. But their commercial value for lumber will probably be many, many years away. Nice choice in tree, though.
